Wasting no time with their final stage negotiations, Germany's cathedral city club are set to introduce Dortmund attacker Steffen Tigges as a Köln player very soon. According to Germany's Sport Bild, a €1.5 million transfer has been finalized. The 23-year-old--scorer of three Bundesliga goals in 15 top flight appearances--gets a slight pay raise as part of the deal.

Tigges finally made the jump to the BVB first-team under then interim trainer Edin Terzic in December of 2020. He nevertheless would have likely been destined for BVB II under Terzic this year, rendering this a fabulous opportunity for the late-bloomer to make the jump up. Tigges has racked up 38 goals for the Dortmund reserves in the Regionalliga and third German football flight.
